10 Useful Web Tools for Creating Online Quizzes and Polls

February, 2014
Following the visual I posted here a couple of weeks ago featuring the differences between formative and summative assessments, somebody shared with the link to this Listly list that comprises dozens of interesting web tools to create online assessments. I have already reviewed some of the tools mentioned in this list in separate posts here in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning but I also found out new tools  I did not know about. I am re-sharing the whole list created below and I invite you to spend some time sifting through its content. Enjoy

Update : After posting the original Listly list, I received several emails informing me that the list does not appear to them  so I decided to copy the list manually here. The original list contains 39 tools but I only featured 20 because the 19 other tools were either purely commercial or have bugs.

1- Socrative | Student Response System
Socrative is a smart student response system that empowers teachers to engage their classrooms through a series of educational games and exercises via smartphones and tablets. Our apps are super simple and take seconds to load and run. Teachers control the questions and games on their laptop, while students respond and interact through their smartphones/laptops. Run it as an app or on any web browser
2-Google Forms + Flubaroo
Google Forms - the quizzes can even be self-grading by adding in the proper "if statements" in the underlying spreadsheet. Google Forms allows you to create many different types of questions, automatically collects usernames, sends data to a spreadsheet, self-grading options such as "if statements" but if you use a tool called Flubaroo http://www.flubaroo.com/ it is even easier to grade them. Google makes it easy to graph results as well. Google Forms also has many public templates with some quizzes that have already been made, you can use and modify them. I like the way Google Forms works with other Google Apps, you can either send the quiz to students via their mail, or embed the quiz in your Google Site.
